Mayor of Hudson’s Hope request Site C stop work order

first_imgLate last Friday, Hydro provided draft environmental plans to Hudson’s Hope and other local governments in anticipation of site preparation and project construction, beginning in 90 days, or as early as January 15.Mayor Johansson argues that makes a mockery of the cabinet approval process, and calls into question the repeated public assurances by Energy Minister, Bill Bennett that building Site C is not a done deal.There are reports the Liberal Cabinet is split on whether to proceed with the third dam on the Peace, and the Mayor contends Hydro is at the very least, being fiscally irresponsible by running up project costs before the cabinet decision is announced.- Advertisement -She also suggests it’s as if Hydro is running up the project costs in an attempt to pressure cabinet into dam approval before the true cost to ratepayers is actually known.last_img read more

first_imgStory Links Loyola 11/12/2016 – 7:00 PM Full Schedule Roster The Valley on ESPN3 DES MOINES, Iowa – Led by 17 kills from junior Kyla Inderski (Urbandale, Iowa), the Drake University volleyball team defeated Bradley, 3-1, on Friday, Nov. 11, at the Knapp Center.”I’m very excited about tonight’s win,” said Drake head coach Darrin McBroom. “It was crucial for us to continue to be in the hunt for the conference tournament. We didn’t play well out of the gate tonight, but I’m proud of the way we played in sets three and four.”Inderski’s 17 kills came on 46 attempts while adding 15 digs for her 14th double-double of the season. She also moved up the career record lists at Drake, surpassing 1,000 career digs while moving up to 998 career kills.”She worked through the first two sets to get her game in rhythm and finished well.

Bulldogs Bury 17 3-Pointers In Season-Opening Win

first_img at Cincinnati 11/11/2019 – 6 p.m. Story Links Roman Penn finished his Drake debut with 10 points on 5-of-5 shooting. Despite not attempting a 3-pointer, Penn played a significant role in Drake’s perimeter prowess; six of his game-high seven assists led to 3-pointers. Box Score (PDF) Jackson needed only 46 seconds in the first half to hit threes from each corner, and Antonio Pilipovic nailed another one from downtown to push Drake’s surge to 9-0. Kennesaw State responded with a three of its own before DJ Wilkins swished a pair of triples in just 20 seconds. Live Stats ESPN 1350 ESPN3 Watch Live Full Schedule Roster Defensively, the Bulldogs clamped down the Owls to the tune of 34.5 percent shooting and 25.0 percent from the three-point arc. Drake’s defensive switches were sharp and forced Kennesaw State into many late-clock situations. The Owls turned it over on a shot-clock violation on their opening possession of the game. Next Game: “Roman was great,” DeVries said. “That’s the reason he’s out there. He’s in such control of the offense and the defense. He really dictates the tempo on both ends of the floor. I thought he was fantastic in terms of just a nice, solid floor game. That’s just kind of what he is, a guy who affects winning, and he certainly did that tonight.”center_img DJ Wilkins backed up his preseason All-MVC honors by scoring a game-best 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting. He connected on four of his seven 3-point tries as the Bulldogs finished 17-of-29 (58.6 percent) from deep as a team. Preview With Penn at the controls, the Bulldogs’ shot chart was an analytics advocate’s dream come true. Drake scored 81 of its 86 points either from 3-point range or in the paint. Some of that was because the Bulldogs attempted only two free throws on the night. Anthony Murphy started off the scoring with a 3-pointer from the left corner less than a minute into the game, setting the tone for a Bulldog barrage from deep. “It’s great to get the season started tonight,” said Drake’s second-year head coach, Darian DeVries. “I thought the guys came out really energized at home, and the banner ceremony really added to it. I’m proud of the guys and the way they played, the way they shared the ball. It was great to get off to a good start.” Drake hit on 9-of-15 trey attempts in the first half as they were spurred on by Jonah Jackson, who scored 15 points on 5-of-8 shooting from deep in his Bulldog debut. Drake (1-0, 0-0 MVC) travels to Cincinnati on Monday for a 6 p.m. tip against the Bearcats. The game will be broadcast regionally on select Fox Sports Networks and on ESPN3. Print Friendly Version DES MOINES, Iowa – On the night the Drake University men’s basketball team put its 2019 Missouri Valley Conference championship banner in the rafters forever, it tied a school record with 17 made 3-pointers en route to a season-opening 86-55 victory over Kennesaw State on Thursday night at the Knapp Center. The 15-3 blitz expanded the Bulldogs’ lead to 24-11 and marked the beginning of the end for Kennesaw State.last_img read more

Cambrian Jellyfish Found

first_imgIt’s official: jellyfish were part of the Cambrian explosion.  National Geographic News has pictures of well-preserved jellyfish fossils from Utah that show even the “distinct bell shape, tentacles, muscle scars, and possibly even the gonads.”    These fossils are dated by evolutionary standards at 500 million years old, into the period of the Cambrian explosion.  This nearly doubles the presumed age of the previously jellyfish fossils identified with certainty.  Not only that, the specimens appear to represent three different groups.    What does this mean for evolutionary theory?  “If verified, these connections would suggest that jellies either evolved into their current, complex form very quickly around 500 million years ago, or they evolved slowly and have existed much longer than has been estimated.”  No sure evidence exists for Precambrian jellyfish or for any intermediate forms leading up to them.    David Tyler commented on this paper in Access Research Network.  The original paper, with photographs, can be found on PLoS One.1  The discoverers explained that alleged cnidarians (a group including jellyfish) have been reported from time to time, but this was the first case of specimens with unambiguous diagnostic characters.  “The early divergence of cnidarians in animal phylogeny leaves little doubt of their presence in the Cambrian; however, there have been no previous reports of fossils possessing preserved characters diagnostic of particular medusozoan clades,” they said.  “The absence of preservation detail in medusozoan fossils has thus far hampered our knowledge of the extent of cnidarian diversity and complexity that existed during this key time in animal evolution.”  They surveyed the best-known examples, but concluded that the only Paleozoic fossils possessing clear diagnostic characteristics of jellyfish previously identified were in Pennsylvanian strata, considered 300 to 315 million years ago.  Middle Cambrian is dated at 515 m.y.a.    Their best guesses identified the eight exceptionally-preserved specimens as members of three classes: Hydrozoa (hydra, hydroids and hydromedusae), Cubozoa (box jellyfish) and Scyphozoa (true jellyfish).  Some of these have muscles, stinging cell arrays, complex sexual organs and behaviors (including mate recognition and courtship), and complex eyes (see 04/01/2007, 05/13/2005).  The fossil specimens resemble living species.  Other families of cnidarians, furthermore, have also been identified in Cambrian strata – such as corals and sea anemones.  In their thinking, this could only mean one thing: “it suggests that the modern cnidarian classes had evolved by the Cambrian.  Further, some of these fossils share commonalities with modern cnidarian orders and families; this may indicate that a significant amount of diversification within the Cnidaria had also occurred by the Cambrian.”1.  Cartwright et al, “Exceptionally Preserved Jellyfishes from the Middle Cambrian,” Public Library of Science One, 2(10): e1121 doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0001121.Of course, they never consider the logical possibility – that evolutionary theory has been falsified again, so living things must have been created.  “At half a billion years old, the fossils represent the oldest jellyfish ever found and push back the known existence of jellies 205 million years, scientists say.”  Well, if “scientists” say such things, what does that do to their credibility?  We have heard this line so many times before, even three times just last month (10/30/2007, 10/04/2007), 10/03/2007).  Give up, evolutionists!  It’s over.  You can’t hide behind the “scientist” badge and say stupid things.  Now you are pushing pure mythology on people and talking like BabbleOnion soothslayers.*(Visited 30 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
